WPCNR COUNTY CLARION-LEDGER. From the Westchester County Department of Communications. March 17, 2018:

  According to the Westchester County Office of Tourism & Film, film activity in Westchester County has risen significantly in the last two years marked by a significant uptick in feature film location shoots.

Westchester County collected a total of $656,224 in location fees for film, television, and commercial shoots at county-owned properties, a 31% increase vs. 2016.

In addition, production days for county-owned properties in 2017 were up 27% from 2016.

County Executive George Latimer said:

“Film activity is an important contributor to our local economy in Westchester. Our municipalities, local businesses and local residents reap economic benefits from film activity. It’s also a point of pride for us. We enjoy seeing our beautiful County in films, television projects and commercials.”

Director of Westchester County Office of Tourism and Film Natasha Caputo notes film activity for 2018 is already off to an impressive start. “Goldfinch,” directed by John Crowley and starring Sarah Paulson and Ansel Elgort, began shooting in Yonkers in February.

Caputo said:

“As more location managers and scouts discover Westchester’s benefits, word gets around quickly. They’ve discovered you can access exquisitely maintained historic properties, impressive government buildings, private homes, gorgeous parks, rural towns, bustling cities, farmland, industrial spaces, restaurants, and hotels—and everything is within easy reach.”
